At work in Russia

Bright Smiles - Novgorod

Last month the Russian division of Colgate donated 200 new toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste to the children's home in the Novgorod region of Russia!

We were told some of the toothbrushes were the electric type and the children thought they were the coolest thing!

A note from the director:

"Thank you very much for your help in arranging the gifts from the company Colgate: the toothpaste and toothbrushes. These items are always needed.  We have begun our school year. The children have begun their studies, they are playing sports and are involved in the Arts. They grew so much over the summer. Those who lived with families learned a great deal from their experiences.  We are sad to part with our graduates, but they have moved on to their own adult lives now.  They are fine adults, we are happy for their accomplishments. 
Thank you again. Good luck in all your nobel deeds."

Medical Supplies - Volgograd

We also started to work in the Volgograd region.  Last month we were able to support one of the baby orphanages by purchasing medical supplies for the disabled children.  

We purchased:
- 4 laser radiation therapy devices
- Inhalers
- Walkers
- Shoe covers
- Rubber gloves
- Sterile gowns
- Gauze
- Air Ionizer 

We were also able to help a sweet little girl at this orphanage in need of surgery.  We assisted with some of the fees needed for her upcoming surgery:

Thank you to all who continue to support TH's in Russia.  We love being able to help these sweet children and continue to thank the Lord for your overwhelming love and support!
